Fletcher is not your average GSP, with the energy of a nuclear reactor. Somewhere around 8 years old, he is a sweet and mellow guy. He loves people as much as he loves to nap and eat. Lucky for him, he was adopted by a family that includes an 11-year old boy and a 14-year old girl, and he’s already known as their younger brother. He is the family’s first dog, and all are ready to dote on him. Thanks to Priscilla and Phil, Anne, and Cheryl for fostering Fletcher.
Janelle and Doug were looking for a companion for their foster alum, Gerde, so they jumped at the chance to foster Oskar. Oskar turned out to be a very sweet boy who gets along great with humans and dogs. But he had a stubborn cough that resisted treatment. Sadly, vet specialists finally diagnosed him with an aggressive form of cancer. By then, his foster family had fallen in love with him. They decided to adopt him and take responsibility for his medical care. Thank you to Janelle and Doug for fostering and adopting Oskar, and for committing to care for […]
Scotty is a gentle young guy who is friendly with dogs, but really loves people. He likes to be around them all the time. Boy, did he win the lottery! He snagged a forever family that lives in a lovely gated community, with lots of pets and squirrels—and with three generations of people living at home. Scotty, now named Remy, will get spoiled with all the loving attention he wants and deserves for the rest of his days. Thanks to Dalia for fostering Scotty until he found his perfect home.
Sweet Nellie, just 5-6 years old, showed up as a stray. Her first foster home loved her dearly, but Nellie couldn’t get the hang of living in harmony with the family cat, so she went to a new, cat free foster home. Without the cat to focus on, Nellie turned her talents to bolting out open doors. The challenge was to find a forever home with secure fencing, so she would be safe on the property. Nellie found a perfect forever home that can give her all the love, snuggles, training—and fencing—that she needs.
When America was surrendered by a hunting facility, she had a growth on her jaw the size of a tennis ball that needed to be addressed. She wasn’t so sure about men. She had no idea what a dog bed was meant for. Her cyst was drained and did not return, and then life really started to turn around for her in her foster home. She was housebroken within 24 hours, and she soon figured out what a dog bed was meant for. She loved her new foster home so much, she decided she was never, ever leaving. They agreed! […]
Mello came to her foster home with a reputation for chewing her way out of crates. Her foster mom decided not to crate her– problem solved! Mello knew basic commands, and was eager to learn more. She behaved so well that after her third day she was set free to roam the ranch off-tether, exploring the horse barn and gardens with her canine sibling. Mello is no dummy—she could see that her new people were sensitive and loving, and this home hard to beat. Is it any wonder she made up her mind very quickly that this would be her […]
Charley looks like a chocolate ball—he’s all liver colored, no white at all. He was found wandering the roads of northern California, and was soon moved into a foster home with four other GSPs. Charley got on great with all of them. He was also a people lover– climbing onto laps for occasional hug sessions—a master fetcher, and he ignores cats! This handsome goofball was in foster care just a few months (thanks Kiara and Floyd!) before being adopted by a family with one other GSP who loves to play fetch and have a backyard pool, too.
Alum Leroy (adopted 2015) was pretty clear that he wanted a canine companion, so when sweet Flo showed up as a stray, Leroy’s family said yes to fostering her. From the moment she arrived, Flo was on her best behavior. She never barked, wagged her tail constantly, was great with the kids, went gleefully on family hikes, and became a fabulous friend to Leroy. Done deal. Way to go, Flo! Thanks Liz and family for fostering, and for providing Flo with a loving forever home. And thank you to Lola for springing her from the shelter and short-term fostering her […]
Petite Sasha, only about two years old, showed up as a stray in Fresno. After rescue, she went along to a foster home that fell in love with her immediately, calling her a total Sweetie Pie that someone was crazy to let go. Sasha now has a loving forever home, complete with and a Doberman sister and doting parents.
